Antiinfectives for Systemic Use

Tubertam (Injections)

Ampoules. Ampoule contains ethambutol dihydrochloride
500 mg.
PHARMACODYNAMICS. Tubertam is an antituberculosis, antibacterial, bacteriostatic drug.
The active ingredient is ethambutol dihydrochloride, which quickly penetrates into bacterial cell, affects ribosome structure, RNAand protein synthesis, lipidic exchange, binds ions of magnesium and copper. It inhibits the ferments, participating in synthesis of cellular mycobacterial wall. It acts only on intensively dividing mycobacteria located extra- and intracellularly (intracellular concentrations exceed extracellular concentrations twice).
Drug is effective against Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MIC 1-2 mg/ml), resistant to streptomycin, isoniazid, PASA, kanamycin, ethionamide, and also Mycobacterium kansasii (MIC 16 mg/ml).
About 1 % of strains have primary resistance to ethambutol.
The resistance slowly develops during monotherapy with ethambutol. The effect develops in 1-2 days. It inhibits the development of resistance to other antituberculous drugs; crossover resistance is not observed.
PHARMACOKINETICS. High Tubertam concentration in blood after injection is
maintained for 2-4 h. Binding with plasma proteins is 20-30%. It easily penetrates into
tissues and organs, body fluids with exception of ascitic and pleural fluid. It is revealed in
cerebrospinal fluid during tuberculous meningitis. The highest concentrations are
determined in kidney, lungs, saliva, urine. It penetrates in breast milk. It doesn't cross
intact blood-brain barrier. It is partially metabolized in liver (15%) with formation of
inactive metabolites. The half-life period is 6 h, and at the disorder of kidney function - 8 h. It is removed with urine (80-90%, from them 50% is unchanged, 15% - as inactive
metabolites) and faeces (10-20% is unchanged). It is excreted during hemodialysis and
peritoneal dialysis.
